knoppix says modem is busy-can't connect


Hello,
I have knoppix 5.1.1 on CD. I have set up the dial up connection--but it keeps saying the modem is "busy". The modem is a agere win modem. Is there another way to configure a dial up connection to get on the internet with a non network computer? the microsoft windows on my computer is damaged which makes downloading impossible. I am thinking of formatting the hard disk & installing a linux os.

Thanks-
elohnah

Hi,

Have You Tried All The Available Ports In The Modem Configuration Tab? However You Have The Slight ssue Of Needing To Download Drivers.

Read this thread to see what you can do, if you are using knoppix off the live CD, I think you are out of luck.
